I hate to start a beer review with a food review but wholly cow, you gotta try these ribs. The food at Beachwood is amazing - good enough to take my beer fearing friends and I never get a complaint, unless we have to wait for a table.
Now the beer. The owner, Gabe, keeps a great tap list and some top tier bottles too. Check out his HopCam on his website to see what's on tap. You won't be disappointed. He has some pretty eclectic beers mixed in with some solid local choices. Reliably amazing.
The crowd is sophisticated but not snobby and leaps and bounds ahead of anything else is Seal Beach or anywhere else in OC.
Don't walk, run to Beachwood.

Beachwood is my local(ish) watering hole and I am lucky to be within 5 miles of it, as it's likely my favorite beer bar in the US. The quality of the beers on draft is unparalleled. Add to that limited taps (more new beer all the time), awesome events (Sour Fest, anyone?), and extremely knowledgeable bartenders (Vito is the man!), and you have the best place to grab a beer in Southern California. The bar seats about 12-13 so it can be a bit hard to get a seat when they're busy, but the bartenders are always happy to serve the standing crowd (plus, there's a thin bar so you can set your drink down if you do happen to be standing). Most of the food is pretty damn good too.
